The new EU regulations on wood packaging came into effect this month

according to the information provided by the German Association of importers of manufactured goods (VFI), the new EU regulations on wood packaging for Inbound Goods (2004/102/EG) came into force on March 1 this year

according to this regulation, all wooden packages of goods entering from third countries outside the European Union (excluding Switzerland) must be treated in accordance with the "management standard of wooden packaging materials in international trade" published by the International Convention for the protection of plant Simultaneities (IPPC), and be attached with special marks specified by IPPC

the new regulations apply to all hardwood and coniferous logs used to carry, package and support goods, excluding plywood and sawdust compression board. Packaging wood needs to be peeled and treated with high temperature (HT) or methyl bromide (MB)

from March 1st, 2005, wooden packages newly made or repaired with successful cases all over the world must be marked with IPPC. Wood packages manufactured and repaired before February 28, 2005 do not need to be marked with IPPC during the transition period before December 31, 2007, but need to be marked with ISO code, enterprise registration number, pest control treatment method identification (HT or MB) and peeling shrinkage, which is written (DB) for experimenters who further optimize the non automatic control innovation environment. For wood packaging that does not comply with EU regulations, the EU will take measures such as pest control, destruction or refusal of entry at the port of entry
